1st 10 pounds ...... Yeah!

Wednesday, March 05, 2008

So, I've been working hard ..... with obstacles and ditches ....... and have finally dropped below the first 10 bls! My next goal: 11 more pounds and I will throw away my old scale.

Explaination? Well, when I graduated university and started trying to lose the weight I bought a new scale. In the last 2 years I have come to realize that it is 9-11 pounds less than reality. My husband bought a digital scale for us last year. It sat unused in the closet for like 6 months but I took it out and dusted it off and bought new batteries for it and am using it. Needless to say, I don't like it's numbers. So.... I occasionally refer to the old one. But I decided that I will toss it's inaccurate and misleading ass after I get to the lowest point it has read for me in recent years. This ia a non-food reward; a symbolic ousting of the past efforts at weightloss that I failed at ...... this new scale will document my victorious achievement of a healthy weight. Sounds good and inspiring to me!
